However, Carroll's recent injury has forced Chelsea to look for alternatives. The clubs are reportedly in talks with a deal worth 50m euros plus 10m in add-ons. They're only rumours.

The Vikings haven't won a road playoff game since beating the Packers in Green Bay in 2004. I'm not making that mistake again.

I think the Eagles pressure will eventually get to Vikings QB Case Keenum and that will be the difference. "Whoever is most complete will win". Minnesota's defense is number one in points allowed (15.8) and weighted DVOA. Scoring 15 points again this week won't cut it against the Vikings , particularly against a defense that can stuff any offensive attack. Foles is 3-1 since MVP candidate Carson Wentz tore his ACL.
